Slovenia as a First Choice of Investors Coming to Europe

Investments bring new ideas, new knowledge, new jobs, and new business culture to the country. They accelerate positive trends and prosperity, as well as foster technological and sustainable development in all areas of society. AmCham Investment Committee aims for Slovenia to become the first choice of investors coming to Europe, by improving the country's investment opportunities and the business environment.

The Future Investment Environment in Slovenia Heavily Depends on All of Us

In the past years the AmCham Slovenia's Investment Committee, and this goes also for other committees that discuss social, environmental and economical challenges and solutions from their field of expertise, focused on the areas of our socio-economic wellbeing that would address the challenges that have been exposed by the globalisation and the last major financial crisis. In recent times our focus slowly expanded towards looking for the solutions for the society and economy in the digital age, which was additionally boosted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Headline: Investment leads to higher competitiveness

We have noticed that foreign investors are increasingly recognizing Slovenia as an environment in which they can create added value, expand business, and increase exports. Slovenia's strategic position in the heart of Europe, with easy access to SEE markets, a highly skilled workforce, research and development capabilities, and high level of stability creates a wonderful environment for manufacturing, services, and R&D.

Supporting inclusive recovery in Central & Eastern Europe

Technology has been a lifeline for many European businesses and communities throughout the pandemic - from helping people find accurate health information and buy groceries online to finding new ways to learn and stay connected with loved ones. But equally, the pandemic has also widened the social divide, putting disadvantaged groups at risk of being further left behind. As economies embark on a path to recovery, creating an accessible digital future for everyone is vital.

Matt Brittin, President, Google Europe, Middle East and Africa


Slovenia is well positioned to leverage the new wave of technology and digitization that has hit us.

We are living in a world where technology and digitization have become indispensable for us to conduct business, but also to maintain personal relationships and stay connected. As the role of technology and digitization becomes more and more important in our lives and economies, we need to be increasingly more strategic about how we approach it, both at the micro and the macro level.

Slovenia and NIL – A Strong Competence Center for Conscia

Two years ago, Conscia extended to Slovenia by acquiring NIL. The decision was not driven by geographic expansion; it was done primarily due to competencies, culture, and innovative spirit that NIL and Slovenia as a country have been demonstrating. This is a very good fit with the Nordic heritage of Conscia.
